What to read from ADX?
If ADX is between 0 and 25 then the particular trading instrument is in a trading range. It is likely just chopping around sideways. Avoid these weak, pathetic stocks!
Once ADX gets above 25 then you will begin to see the beginning of a trend. Big moves (up or down) tend to happen when ADX shoots above 25
When the ADX indicator gets above 30 or 35 then higher the number bigger the strong trend!
If ADX reaches greater than 50 then one should see trends coming to an end and trading ranges start developing again.
Based on the above multi-timeframe analysis on ADX one could conclude that both Daily & Weekly timeframe is developing a trend and monthly timeframe is consolidating. However, the rise in ADX on monthly timeframe is the key for a sustained and accelerating uptrend.
Monthly Breaking 1346 levels with accelerating ADX value on the monthly timeframe is the key for long term sustained uptrend
